BRANDON JONES aka JONZU JONES
Meet Brandon, New York based fabulously talented fashion stylist. See Fab Ego's editorial "The Power of Thought" to view Brandon's unique and eclectic editorial work.
Where are you from and where is your current home?
I was born and raised in NYC. I grew up on the Upper East side and Hells Kitchen and then moved to New Rochelle when I was 14. Currently, I am a bit of a nomad, living in New Rochelle, with my friends in Brooklyn Heights, and my boyfriend on the Upper East side.
What is your fab ego scale from 1 to 10 and why?
10 , FAB EGO IS BEYOND FABULOUS!
Where do you shop?
For food I usually just get whatever, I'm really not super particular although I love sushi. I do not follow crazy diets like a lot of New Yorkers yet when I feel that I am getting bigger my diet would be diet coke and kool menthols... The model's diet haha. For clothing I'm a bit all over the place. I love shopping online especially at Oki-ni and Farfetch. I thrift a lot, I hit up "Buffalo Exchange", "Tokio7", and "Tokyo Joe" all in East Village. I am obsessed with "Search and Destroy" and "Trash and Vaudeville" at St. Marks. When I can splurge I go to "Opening Ceremony".
Who is your style icon?
I'm so inspired by Lady Gaga and she really does nothing wrong in my eyes. I am also very asian at heart and get a lot of my inspiration from Japanese fashion.
Your favorite NYC coffee place.
I love Starbucks like everyone else in fashion. I also love going to the Promenade in downtown Brooklyn and just being in my own world for a bit.
Who you wanted to be when you were a kid?
I am a fashion stylist. I knew I wanted to be a stylist from reading fashion magazine since age 4. When Rachel Zoe had her show, I knew this is really what I wanted to do. I did have a dream to be a designer as well but styling and being behing-the-scene has always been my passion and goal.
Your favorite quote, poem, song.
My favorite song is, "I'm waiting for the man by Velvet Underground." Velverlt Underground will always be relevant, especially to me. My life motto is really to just live to the fullest and always be an optimistic person.
Your sign, astrological and Chinese.
i am an Aires and my chinese zodiac is the Dog. My birthday is April 7th.
Are you a free person?
What is your instagram?
You are an artist how can you impact or let's say improve what's happening with our environment, energy, peace
In terms of fashion I think we should convert more to 3-d printing. Iris Van Herpen uses alot of 3-d printing for ger collections and the result is similar to leather.
How can we make our Earth a better place?
We all need to be more accepting and I feel things are getting better and changing but there is still work to be done.
Your wishes to fab ego.
Keep putting out beyond beautiful editorials and hopefully I can continue to be apart of the fab ego family.
